Fidget Spinners PBL

Fidget Spinners PBL, 8th Grade Science

Students are working for a company called MAD inc to redesign the fidget spinner to help the company increase profits.  The company proposed spin time increase as the design component that needed to increase.  So using the Engineer Design process students have researched, planned, built, and tested their prototype spinners.  We will find out if any of them where able to beat the company’s current models and will be able to patent the product or if they are back to the drawing board for a redesign. (See pictures above in the slide show.) Here is our Facebook photo album link with the pictures:
